Gea Haff

“Self learner; reading.”
Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!

“Reading books exposes us to the consistency and uniqueness of being human. Book reading is an investigatory process. We read books in order to encounter the orchestrated words that describe emotions and observations that we too have experienced but are unable to glean the right alignment of words that fully embody the resonance that we seek.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Bianca Iosivoni
“Das mit dem Sport üben wir nochmal, hm?", kommentierte er trocken, während er seinen Wohnungsschlüssel hervorzog. Ich richtete mich auf und gab ihm einen Stoß gegen die Schulter. "Was willst du von mir? Meine sportlichen Aktivitäten beschränken sich darauf, beim Lesen die Seiten umzublättern." Und Messer zu werfen.”
Bianca Iosivoni, Flüstern des Lichts

Umberto Eco
“An illiterate person who dies, let us say at my age, has lived one life, whereas I have lived the lives of Napoleon, Caesar, d’Artagnan. So I always encourage young people to read books, because it’s an ideal way to develop a great memory and a ravenous multiple personality. And then at the end of your life you have lived countless lives, which is a fabulous privilege.”
Umberto Eco

“If you read a book which does not make you wonder, ponder!”

Joseph Patrick Pascale

“Reading, writing, and personal introspection will not protect us from hardship and suffering, but they might introduce us to critical thinking and expose us to what is good in humankind and beautiful in the world that we share with all of nature. Contemplative thought, especially that supplemented with reading literature and attempting to write our own replies to the echoing voices of writers whom preceded us provide us with the potentiality for change, the possibility of personal illumination that enables us to experience a heighted quality of life.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“The book you read and read well, over and over again, lives in you, becomes your thought and thinking pattern, teaches you all the time and keeps reminding you about how to act and react towards things and occurrences’ in life!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Munia Khan
“Reading is the life-saving water for our minds. Drink pure words as much as you need and remain alive!”
Munia Khan

“Everyone wants to be happy and live mindfully. Books teach us how to resuscitate the body and soul and how to recognize what in our own personal lives is worthy of noticing. Writers’ considered opinions and subtle observations regarding the joys, paradoxes, pains, tragedies, and truths of living provide us with a jumpstart in analyzing how best to integrate our personal experiences and disjointed thoughts into a cogent belief system. An artistic person understands their passions demand a struggle. Reading allows me unobtrusively to discover how other people freed themselves from suffering a destructive life of attachment, delusion, and disablement.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

“You can't keep living without breathing; don't keep living without reading!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“You’ve got more to read than to worry”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Ernest Hemingway
“When I was writing, it was necessary for me to read after I had written. If you kept thinking about it, you would lose the thing you were writing before you could go on with it the next day. It was necessary to get exercise, to be tired in the body, and it was very good to make love with whom you loved. That was better than anything. But afterwards, when you were empty, it was necessary to read in order not to think or worry about your work until you could do it again. I had learned already never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it.”
Ernest Hemingway

Jitesh  Donga
“કારણકે બુધ્ધી વગરના માણસો જ પુસ્તકો ભેગા કરે, અને એને પ્રેમ કરે. હું તો જે પુસ્તક વાંચી નાખું એ બીજા બાળકો કે મારી દુકાન પર આવતા માણસોને દાન કરી દઈશ. પુસ્તકો જિંદગીઓ સુધારે, એટલે એના થપ્પા ના કરવાના હોય, કે એને પ્રેમના કરવાનો હોય, એને વહેંચી દેવાના હોય.”
Jitesh Donga, નોર્થ પોલ [North Pole]

“...the way such teaching should come to us is, here a little and there a little, incidentally, from books which we read for the interest of the story, the beauty of the poem, or the grace of the writing.”
Charlotte Mason, Ourselves

“Reading self-improvement books is like creating a mental savings account from which we can withdraw viable tools for what we perceive as tough days.”
Dr. Jacent Mpalyenkana, Ph.D. MBA

Paulo Coelho
“I haven't got time to read books.'

'What do you mean you haven't got time? What are you doing?'

'Lots of things: studying French, writing a diary, and ...'

'And what?'

She was about to say 'waiting for the phone to ring', but she thought it best to say nothing.

'My dear, you're still very young, you've got your whole life ahead of you. Read. Forget everything you've been told about books and just read.'

'I've read loads of books.”
Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes

Dedrie Marie
“The most precious thing working with authors (and writing my own books) has given me is freedom. I work hard—not that it feels like work—but it’s on my terms. And I haven’t had to submit a time-off request to my new boss…well, ever.”
Dedrie Marie, How to Become a Successful Beta Reader Book 1: Learning the Fundamentals of Fiction
